November 2013

I have a quick tip for you today in regards to Photoshop Layer Styles.

Here is a snapshot of my Layers Style Panel.


You can see that I have loaded several styles, and in between each style set is a white rectangle with a red diagonal line thru it.

While the white rectangle serves as a divider between styles, it also has another function. One I didn’t realize for a long time.

The red line on the white rectangle style icon indicates “no style.”  So it only makes sense that if we click on that white triangle, whatever style we have applied to a layer will be removed.

Let me show you what I mean. Here is a screen shot of a label with some text on it. I have applied one of my Imprint Styles to the text to press it into the paper.


But what if I change my mind and decide I don’t want to apply a style to my text?

In Photoshop, I can right click on the text layer to display my options, then click on the “Clear Layer Style,” and the style will be removed.

In Photoshop Elements, I need to exit the Effects Panel, go to the Layers Panel, right click on the FX icon on my text layer, then click on “Clear Layer Style.”

(Screenshot from Photoshop CS6)


Here’s an easier way! Just click on the white rectangle with the red diagonal line, and your style will be removed!

In Photoshop, you click once. In Photoshop Elements, you need to click twice.

In the image below you will see that the style has been removed from my text…. with just one click of a button.


Being able to take care of a task with just one click instead of multiple clicks is always my idea of a Great Tip! I hope you think so too!

CREDITS:  Adobe Photoshop CS6 was used in this tutorial.  The label and paper pictured in the screen shots are from the new collaboration entitled “the Long Road Home,  between SnickerdoodleDesigns and ADB Designs.  Look for it’s release December 7th. And finally, the Imprint Styles can be found in the SnickerdoodleDesigns CU store. Although they come with a CU license, they are the perfect additional to any scrapper’s digi-stash!
